Have you got a link to where the driver briefing will be when it starts?

weeeee brilliant race guys! Sad to see a drive-through and a spin with 2 laps to go, but well.. got me from P9 to P7 after having started in 17th o_O

Really fair, great battles, massively close racing. Hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did :)


side note: blue flags mean yield, not "holding faster cars up for 3 laps and costing them 2secs per lap".
and: stop flashing your goddamn lights after someone overtook you nice and clean. Not allowed and hella distracting.

Blinking the lights out of anger is a big no-no. It is in the rules. Feel free to report it if you feel like it.

Well done to the guys in front of me! 1 mistake cost me the race! I tapped wall on the entry to the pit and lost time fixing the damage! Race win went down the drain in one slip-up! Happy with the pole! but it don't mean nothing unless you convert it!
The host was great and hopefully see you all next week!

Couldnt agree with you more on the blue flags and flashing.

Blue flags -
Was same suspects everytime.
I was stuck for 5 laps behind same driver I was lapping, blue flag out for 5 full laps but would not yield, costing me nearly 3 seconds a lap, because said driver going defensive on corners not letting me through or yielding slightly on the striaghts etc.

Regarding the flashing -
Same drivers also, and was for position not for being lapped.
It's in the rules not to flash to distract!

Regarding Pulling back onto the track without looking or using mini map.
Two people did this which ruin my race. Lost 9 places in total between the two incidents and last one causing me plenty of damage 2 laps before the end.

I'm giving this the benifits of the doubt and not report anyone this time to the stewards and hope the driving standards improve for the next one.

We all join leauges to have good clean competitive racing, not to be taken out by mindful acts of impatience.

Just my piece, and looking forward to the next one.

I think that people really need to read the rules with more deep and time as for me this race showed a huge gap in racing etiquette for the standards that I have saw previously on AOR Season 3, i guess a lot of new drivers that need time to adjust and take the right mentality about clean racing.

@NCUK2002 I think you should report all incidents even the small ones. Stewards will decide if any penalty is necessary. People wont magically change their on track behaviour without getting some feedback.

@ShaunNEVS Great pace mate, was really wondering what happend to you in the pits, since it suddenly moved me a place up. Sad to see the little slip up in the pits:confused:. Looking forward to Hungaroing, hope i can keep up with your race pace ;).

I can only agree with this. People won't change unless they know what they did wrong. So either have a (friendly!) conversation with them, or stewards. Some will never learn, but will think twice when they see their penalty points climb up...

I, as both driver and coordinator, agree with reporting people when you feel like someone has done something wrong. Not to bully or whatever, but I have enough experience in simracing now that people will keep on doing what they're doing if they don't feel the concequences.

The headlight flashing guy (Nissan) has plenty of reports from just this race. He should just be lucky i didnt flash my brake lights at him. This isnt the first race i have seen this, it wont be the last.

Causing a crash because you get annoyed is never an answer and has a high chance of causing an unecessary crash, in which innocent driver can easly get caught in. If someone does something wrong report it.
